Obviously when a relative is in hospital you are very worried.
I called Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to enquire how my grandmother was and got told by nurse that my grandmother never wanted to talk to anyone, she was sitting in armchair waiting for her breakfast.
After having a stroke and not being able to walk herself, being very agitated and confused her legs giving her real problems, because of cellulitis, why was she seated alone with no one watching over her? We later found out she "slipped off the chair". Where was the duty of care, the attitude of the nurse was appalling and distasteful, ignorant and damn right rude.
